Middle Class Problems

#Middle Class Problems by Benjamin Lee, chosen by Norah Perkins of Curtis Brown

Norah Perkins“I mentioned on this blog last week that I liked two sorts of books for the Christmas holidays, the funny and the sublime. #Middle Class Problems is both funny and sublime. It’s the kind of book that gets passed around the family and all your visitors over the holidays; snippets are read aloud and dads are teased and it all ends up inspiring a kind of family joke meme. Plus, it’s a very classy looking little book.

Here’s a tasting menu:

‘A swan just spat in our salsa’

‘It’s so annoying when you order a flat white and get a cappuccino’

‘No quinoa. Weekend ruined.

‘My cyclone vacuum is still clogged with Nordic pine needles – will the stress of Christmas never end?! #middleclassproblems’

And so on…

Based on the frankly addiction forming @middleclassprob Twitter feed, curated by the incomparable Benjamin Lee (the man who brought us @michael_haneke – go look that up, you’ll thank me), #Middle Class Problems is damn funny – because it holds a mirror up to our selves. Our quinoa-scorching, pug-loving, WhatsApping, ceviche-guzzling, Aeropress-plunging, iPhone-addicted selves.

Read it and weep – with laughter.”
